History of Shimla and me
Shimla Past and Present by Edward J Buck. In chapter VIII titled "Some Old Houses and their Owners" I happen to be presently (Year 2015) the owner of two properties. First " Bridge a View" presently a Hotel by the name of "Bridge View Regency". Second, "Torrentium House" presently a Hotel by the name of " Torrentium Lodge".
I also have in my possession a few documents depicting that the property by the name of "Torrentium Lodge" was once owned by "Sir Ganga Ram" with the names of the past and next owners of the same property. I have restored the Old House to its Original Facet, which took a good sweat and money out of me. Worth a Harwork and Fortune.
This Book has brought courage and faith in me that once a written document, now a History, means a Faith in Life of a Personality who had written this Book in the past and to me .... Reading it now ..... And .... Perhaps a Lot More .... To my successors.
